Scott Lecture Series Part 1 Featuring Dr. Janette Herbers
Bryn Mawr College | Ely Room, Wyndham Alumnae House
215 North Merion Ave., Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
Abstract: Over half of the children staying in emergency homeless shelters with their families in the United States are under the age of 6 years. However scant quality research exists to understand risks associated with homelessness for infants and very young children. This lecture will first describe what is known about risk and resilience for young children experiencing homelessness, including recent work by Dr. Herbers and her colleagues. Then Dr. Herbers will present future directions for her work on the basic developmental processes of risk and resilience as well as efforts to develop effective interventions to enhance the well-being of infants and young children experiencing homelessness.
